Lawless London: Man Stabbed Outside Home After Taking a Stand ‘Against Local Drug Dealers’.
Breitbart Europe: A community activist has been allegedly beaten and stabbed to death by a gang on his London estate after reportedly confronting local drug dealers during London’s violent crime wave.
Ian Tomlin, a former boxer who drove buses for the elderly and disabled, had spoken to drug dealers and asked them not to sell near his home, locals and family claimed, with some saying the police had lost control of the area.
The victim, 46, was beaten to death in Battersea, south London, and found collapsed outside his own home on Wednesday night. Medics spent 45 minutes trying to resuscitate him before he was pronounced dead at the scene, the Evening Standard reports.
His family is understood to live in another flat on the estate nearby and a neighbour who came across the crime scene told the newspaper: “It was like a slaughterhouse.” MORE
